Family Service Opportunities
OOMS family and friends - you are welcome to join us for our monthly Family Service events! Our staff has worked hard to put together one event per month for OOMS staff, students, family, and friends to get out in the community and help serve others. See details below!
UPCOMING OOMS Family Service Opportunities
NOVEMBER 2017 - Holiday Giving Drives
During the holiday season, help those less fortunate with one of the many opportunities provided.
- 6th Grade Drive Collection for Veterans
- Holiday Help Program
- OLSD Middle School Canned Food Drive
- OOMS Student Council Sponsored People in Need (PIN) drive for winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves for babies through teens. This will run November 6 to December 6. These donated items will then be used in a PIN holiday bazaar where those that qualify for food pantry can get new winter clothing.
DECEMBER 2017 - MoMM Foundation Holiday Blessings
Each year the MoMM Foundation helps make the holidays special for families in need around Central Ohio. This year the MoMM Foundation adopted 130 families!!! Orange Middle school students and staff will provide gifts for close to 15 of these families! The MoMM Foundation supplies holiday gifts for all of the children in the family and provides them all with a winter coat, pajamas, and a stocking. For our December family service opportunity we will be helping the MoMM Foundation deliver these items to families in Central Ohio.
If you would like to deliver Holiday Blessings to one or more families, please sign up here. We will meet at the Westerville Jaycee Pool on Saturday, December 16th at 1:00PM.
The past 2017-2018 OOMS Family Service Opportunities
OCTOBER 2017 – Make a Difference Day
Are you looking for a service opportunity for your family? Check out this amazing event for families offered through Connections Volunteer Center:
On October 28th, Connections will help Delaware County celebrate National Make A Difference Day by gathering volunteers for a morning of service to our Senior Community and to area non-profits. Volunteers will gather that morning at Camp Lazarus, on Rt. 23 just South of Delaware, and have a light breakfast and jobs are assigned to volunteers. The volunteers then go out all over the county to do good works. Volunteers then return to camp with their paperwork and share their stories and enjoy some delicious hot dogs. Individuals, families, and groups are welcome to participate. All ages are welcome. Adult supervision is required and students can not be dropped off. Registration is open on the Connections Volunteer Center website.
We hope to see you there!
